1) MultiplyUs 3: Praying for Disciple-Making Movements in North America

1) MultiplyUs 3: Praying for Disciple-Making Movements in North America

If you’ve taken part in MultiplyUs 1 or MultiplyUs 2, you’ve already heard stories that give us inspiration and hope – about launching disciple-making movement (DMM) strategies in North America. Maybe you’ve read the companion stories in this month’s edition of Mission Frontiers. (See the Jan/Feb. edition at https://www.missionfrontiers.org/issue/archive/home-grown-movements.) Now, help these movements come to pass – by joining with others to pray during MultiplyUs 3, March 10, 7-8:30pm ET. It’s THE most important first step. Note that this isn’t a meeting ABOUT prayer. It’s a meeting to PRAY. For more information or to register, click to http://multiplyus.com. (Doug Lucas will be facilitating. He’d love to meet you there in prayer.)

2) GREAT Responses to “How Can We Learn All These Languages”

2) GREAT Responses to “How Can We Learn All These Languages”

So far, a dozen different people have responded to last week’s question about how can we learn languages more effectively. But it’s not just the fact that a dozen people responded. It’s that these dozen people include PhDs and trainers with DECADES of experience and (literally) world renown! If you end up adding your opinion or testimony alongside theirs, please do it at the initial URL, https://brigada.org/2021/01/10_30958. This is one of the best deals about Brigada: We’re so blessed to have such top-flight people taking part. Thank you! read more…

8) Enhance Your Fundraising Abilities (Missio Nexus Course)

Could you use a bit of help with fundraising? (Who couldn’t?) Believe it or not, Missio Nexus has a five-module course, free for all members. (One might say that the value of this single course is greater than any membership fee you might have to pay to be a part of Missio Nexus – and then you get everything else, including the annual meet-up, for free!) This thing is 5 modules, with a whopping 30 sessions! What’s more, it’s self-paced – on YOUR schedule. Learn more at https://missionexus.org/courses/fundraising-and-development-101/. read more…

10) Avoid an Imposter Complex: Pray

10) Avoid an Imposter Complex: Pray

We’re excited about the MultiplyUs 3 conference investing in prayer for their next meeting. (The conference is actually going to PRAY instead of just TALK about prayer.) In fact, we’re excited about ANY emphasis on prayer these days. For example, we noticed that 24-7 Prayer has a course (on prayer that seems unanswered) starting Wednesday, the 17th of Feb. (Learn more and sign up at https://prayercourse.org/prayercourse2/). And YWAM Publishing, of course, has their new annual prayer diary at https://www.ywampublishing.com/p-2088-2021-personal-prayer-diary-and-daily-planner.aspx. But at the end of the day, we ALL just seemingly have to make prayer a priority. It just doesn’t happen because of a book or a course or a conference. We have to DO it – day by day, step by step. The org with which we work (Team Expansion) is in the middle of a 21-day prayer and fasting emphasis. (Watch a quick video about it at https://vimeo.com/499122717.) The emphasis is on “first and foremost, pray.” So – what about you? Do you have a tad of “imposter complex” because you TALK about prayer but are ashamed you aren’t really DOING anything about it? The fix is easy: It starts today, by praying. Start. Today. read more…
